Deveaux Unveils Fall / Winter 2017 Collection
New York, NY, February 1st, 2017 – New York-based luxury menswear label, Deveaux is pleased to unveil the brand’s Fall / Winter 2017 collection, set to make its debut on the runway for CFDA’s NYFW: Men’s at Cadillac House on February 1st, 2017. Taking inspiration from the untouched, raw beauty of Iceland, designers Matt Breen, Patrick Doss and Andrea Tsao have put forth a highly curated offering of minimally luxe wardrobe staples that show a seamless evolution from seasons past.
The natural formations and elements of a landscape formed long ago lead the design vision for Deveaux this season. Material interest plays a central role in the collection as seen in supple textures used throughout the offering, like a heavy silk akin to the pebbles of the black sand beaches and dyed Italian calf suede that resembles Iceland’s dusty brown rock formations. Deveaux also used a luxe shearling with a custom matte finish to mirror the deep black of the night sky. Enamored with the peppered ash of Iceland’s volcanic history, the design team dyed tube-knitted cashmere and handknit it into a beautiful heavy cardigan, that serves one of the standout pieces in the collection.
The Fall / Winter 2017 color palette stays true to Deveaux’s tonal aesthetic with rich, earthy hues laying the foundation for this season’s styles. While Iceland’s natural tones lie at the core of the collection, artist Mark Rothko’s works serve as the inspiration for how they interact on each piece. The seemingly random interaction of diverse colors in Rothko’s works is applied to the tonal interaction of Deveaux’s newest knits and shirting, which make a bold statement against the minimal backdrop of the full offering.
Continuing the brand’s exploration of proportion play, Deveaux utilizes loose, fluid, and in some cases oversized, silhouettes to drive the direction for the season.
“This collection marks an important time in the evolution of Deveaux– one where the identity of our brand has begun to take form. As we delve deeper into sourcing new materials and textures and silhouettes, our commitment to creating a new class of luxury menswear staples remains intact,” says Designer Andrea Tsao.
Fall / Winter 2017 also introduces Deveaux’s first foray into footwear with the introduction of the brand’s first collaboration with Viberg (www.Viberg.com), an iconic footwear manufacturer known for creating some of the world’s best boots and casual footwear since 1931. The collaboration will put forth 3 shapes including a Zip Boot, a Chelsea Boot and a Slip-On (all in Black Kangaroo, Brown Chromexcel, and Brown Calf Suede, with the addition of Over-Dyed Black Calf available for the Slip On).
